Tenoch Huerta’s work is heading north of the border…
Cinema Libre Studio has picked up Days of Grace, starring the Mexican actor, who is considered one of his country’s fast-rising stars.
The feature debut of Mexican director Everardo Gout, who also wrote the script, is a tale of police and government corruption in Mexico City. The ambitious multi-threaded movie unfolds over a dozen years amid multiple kidnappings during successive World Cup tournaments. It centers on a cop, a hostage and a wife who fight to survive during the futbol events.
Days of Grace will go out day-and-date May 1 in U.S. theatres and on HBO, and via DVD/Blu-ray and On Demand starting May 5.
The film took eight Ariel Awards including best first film, best actor and supporting actress following its April 2012 debut in its home country.
In addition to Huerta, the film also stars Dolores Heredia, Kristyan Ferrer, Carlos Bardem and Eileen Yañez.
